Admire Ancient History in Bustling Beirut
Beirut is a fast-paced, vibrant city offering a wealth of character, with plenty of reminders of its rich and abundant history. Take a leisurely stroll along the palm tree-lined corniche, before stopping off at one of many quaint cafés overlooking the Mediterranean and Racouche’s Pigeon Rocks. Beyond the city centre, Beirut’s surrounding areas offer a unique opportunity to experience ancient history first-hand. Byblos and Tyre are home to an impressive array of Roman ruins, as well as lively souks brimming with culture and cuisine. Swap the bustle of Lebanon’s capital for the picturesque surroundings of the Bekaa Valley, but be sure to stop off in Baalbek City to admire superbly preserved Roman temples and gain a fascinating insight into the Phoenician civilisation.
